That was me, about eleven months ago when I was in Reno for the USBC Open Championships.

This past week, I was in Las Vegas for this year's tournament. Notice a difference?

In 2016 you curled your pinky up as you released the ball - not so in 2017. And you got a rad, cool, new (and several sizes smaller) shirt. Way to go!

Amazing how similar the two pics are in terms of capturing the moment of release.

Well, I can certainly see it. There is less of you and it is obvious to me. Do you mind telling us how much.??

Also, it appears you must have lost more weight on one foot over the other. It looks like you had to get a new left shoe. Very Happy

I was down 97# at the time I left for Vegas... just couldn't get down to the 100# mark (and I put on 3-1/2 back on).

Shirt size down from 3XL to 1XL, pants size from 46 to 40.

Thanks for the compliment.

And that is actually a "slide sock" on my left shoe. My bowling shoes actually have interchangable soles, so that I can change to one that will give me more or less slide, depending on the condition of the approaches (for example, in summer they can be more sticky in the midwest, or on new installations they might be much more slippery until they get worn in). However, after my knee surgery in 2015, I couldn't find any combination for "regular" usage, so I bought an $11 slide sock and use it all of the time.
